World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie Apocalypse – Max Brooks
Have you ever played a game like ‘What if…?’ You start with a scenario and then each person spins a different take on the original scenario until you cover all eventualities? This is what the book, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie Apocalypse does.
Would you be safe behind a locked door? Nope. If a zombie knows you’re there, he’ll get his friends to force it open.
Would you be safe behind a locked door made of reinforced steel? Nope. They’ll find a window.
Would you be safe behind a locked door made of reinforced steel that was the only entrance to a bunker? Only as long as your supplies last.
Things look grim for humanity in this fine addition to the horror genre. It is to the credit of Max Brooks (son of Mel Brooks) that this is a convincing look at just what would happen to contemporary societies around the world if a zombie apocalypse ever did occur.
